Machu Picchu Inca Citadel — The Best Tourist Attraction In The World

Machu Picchu Inca site is a phenomenal icon of Peru and a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1983. Nowadays it is one of the seven new wonders of the World and the most important attraction of Peru. The Inca citadel perched 2400 m / 7,874ft. above the Urubamba Valley. We understand that for most people, visiting Machu Picchu is a once-in-a-lifetime trip, and on Machu Picchu private tours, we will make sure every detail is perfect.

  • Machu Picchu is of great value to Peru not only for its touristic attraction or demonstration of an ingenious native culture, but also because of the diverse ecosystem. Spread over 32 thousand hectares, the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu is believed to nurture about 10% of the fauna and 22% of the flora found in Peru. On the citadel itself you just may bump into one of these woolly creatures.
  • The word most often repeated by visitors to Machu Picchu is impressive. To visit Machu Picchu is the opportunity to be exposed to the architectural feat of the Incas, a unique combination of man and nature. The craftsmanship of the Incas to cut large stones into polygonal shapes make this structure a splendor to observe.
  • The backdrop to the panoramic views of Machu Picchu, this mountain provides the best vantage point. Meaning “young mountain” in Quechua, Huayna Picchu reaches 2,667 meters high, making it over 200 meters taller than the “old mountain”, Machu Picchu. Though the climb up does not require any technical skills, the 1000-foot ascent is quite steep.
